At the public Masses on April 17th and 20th, Pope Benedict XVI will bless the religious articles (rosaries, medals, crucifixes, etc.) that those attending the Mass have brought for his blessing.
The Holy Father will bless some additional objects as well. At Nationals Park in Washington, D.C., he will bless the new cornerstone and tabernacle of Pope John Paul II High School in Arlington, Virginia.
At Yankees Stadium in the Bronx, the Holy Father will bless a cornerstone for the bicentennial garden of the Cathedral of Saint Patrick and a crucifix for the chapel of Saint John Neumann Seminary residence.
